Seismographic Sounds: Visions Of A New World book launch

April book launch event for Norient’s new collection of globetrotting music essays

The UK launch of Norient’s new collection of globetrotting music essays Seismographic Sounds: Visions Of A New World will take place at London’s Rough Trade East next month. Thomas Burkhalter, one of Seismographic Sounds’ editors, will moderate an audiovisual panel featuring researcher Martin Stokes, musician Nkisi and The Wire’s Louise Gray and Derek Walmsley, all of whom contributed pieces to the anthology. The event will conclude with a DJ battle between Nkisi’s Non Records and DJ Ritu.

The launch takes place on 25 April. The book is out now on Norient. Read Derek Walmsley's contribution to the book, Deconstructing Violence In Grime, in our Book Extracts section.
